Extra Garcia Goodness!
It is easy to hear from this lovely matrix creation how "locked-in" the sound system was at that Uptown on this night. Garcia is obviously diggin' it as he is not only singing with tender careful beauty but takes double-length solos in both 'Ship of Fools' and "He's Gone'. I'm a Black Peter freak, and after repeated listening, it is definitely my favorite of the Brent-era. Then non-stop rockin' until the finish line. Really, truly superb second set with all band members in psychedelic coil. Thanks tapers, matrix makers and IA!

The first set shows signs of a disaster with strained readings and uninspired drums reminiscent of the 78 spring tour. Jerry makes several attempts to wake up during Cold Rain and Althea, but this set falls flat on it's face. Four starts for the second set with an Other One that makes what came before it a distant memory.
Check out Hunter's Matrix of 11/24 for a truly smoking show. Thanks again Mr. Trix.

Hot, hot, hot show. No hyperbole necessary, just listen to this, you are in the the venue on a really good night with the Grateful Dead.
Highest recommendation. Crank it up.
My thanks for the great job on the mix on this one.
